Met Police officer accused in stalking woman

Metropolitan Police Officer has been accused of stalking woman while on duty.

After a dispute with her neighbour, PC Jonathan Simon (43), allegedly began a sexual relationship.

The Westminster Magistrates Court heard that he suggested that she become a prostitute and recommended a website after she spoke about her financial difficulties.

He pleaded guilty to stalking but will be tried in October.

David Roberts, the prosecutor, said that PC Simon showed up at the home of the complainant and the bank where she worked in full uniform after she had told the constable she didn't want to see him.

PC Simon was taken into custody by the Met on Monday. He is an East Area Command Unit Attache.

He was kept in custody for the night before being released and appearing in court earlier.

PC Simon spoke to confirm his name and date of birth in Colchester. He pleaded not guilty between 1 October & 1 July to stalking.

Judge Nina Tempia stated that he was facing a one-day trial in the same court on October 6.

PC Simon joined police in 2010 as a special constable, before becoming a salaried officer.

He was released on bail with the condition that he not contact the complainant nor go into the east London areas where she lives or works.

Met stated that its Directorate of Professional Standards was informed and that a referral was made to the Independent Office for Police Conduct.
